The service was excellent - efficient, welcoming and knowledgeable. My wife and I had 6 dishes between us and all were well presented, interesting and ... very tasty indeed. The ambience was wonderful as always. We shall return!

Led by Head Chef Thomas Hine, formerly of the Michael Caines restaurant at ABode, The Coach House by Michael Caines is an award-winning restaurant located in the stunning grounds of Kentisbury Grange Hotel. All dishes are created from scratch by the talented kitchen team, who were hand-picked by Michelin star chef Michael Caines himself.

With a passion for fresh, local produce, Tom and Michael have designed the fantastic menu to be a true celebration of the best of what Devon and the South West have to offer, featuring bold flavours and impeccable presentation.

Kentisbury Grange Hotel blends modern glamour with country charm and the onsite restaurant does not disappoint, with cobalt-blue crushed velvet upholstery, slate floors and a large marble bar.

Just a short drive away from Coach House by Michael Caines in Devon are the stunning, dune-lined beaches of Saunton Sands & Ilfracombe. Kentisbury Grange Hotel is the perfect base from which to explore the delights of the region.

    We love coming to KG, it never disappoints us! The balance of dishes is always good. The special promotional lunches are great value and the staff always friendly.

    Fabulous lunch from the welcome to the table service to the delicious food. Unusual flavour combinations (liver pate with rhubarb) to the smooth tangy blackcurrant cassis sorbet with the lemon tart - amazing! The only problem is that the restaurant is so far away from home!!

    Excellent service, lovely food, lovely ambience. A relaxed lunch with friends. Frequent visitor never disappoints. Looking forward to the jazz lunches.

    Lovely location, attentive knowledgeable staff, exceptional service and the food ticked all the boxes for quality, taste and presentation.
    The hake was so fresh and cooked to perfection. A dessert arrived without the accompanying chocolate sauce but that was soon rectified.
    Lunch is good value, A truly enjoyable meal. .

    Food was outstandingly presented as usual, just felt a brioche /toast was needed with the duck liver, as it's too rich otherwise, and the pork dish needed a starch/ purée of some kind, pork was suburb on its own, garnish a little too similar, i.e. Crunchy/ crispy , but that's nick picking , cheers ;)

    We came yesterday for Sunday lunch, and we're very disappointed with the tiny portions. I would have thought that with the main courses one should be able to order extra vegetables. I had the one baked egg with little else as a main which was really a starter.
    My son stopped on his way back to London for a meal a couple of hours later as he was so hungry.
    We have been in the past and enjoyed the food.

    Excellent food, well presented and tasted delicious. Interstesting crockery used but still practical and easy to eat from.
    Atmosphere good, waiters and waitresses attentive but not too much.
    The staff wear nice looking waistcoats but some wear them with jeans where as I feel other trousers or skirts would look smarter.
    Taking part in the Exmoor Food festival is good and having special offers as a result - good publicity and may bring in new customers.
